Solar power firm praised

Solar power firm praised
A company which is developing portable and flexible solar panelling was praised as a leading light in photovoltaics.

Cardiff-based G24i, which plans to become one of the first to use renewable sources to manufacture renewable energy systems, was visited by the Welsh Assembly's Minister for Environment, Sustainability and Housing.

Jane Davidson said: "Climate change is the greatest challenge we face today. Our ability to develop 21st century technology that cuts our carbon and environmental footprint will be vital."

New Energy Focus reported that she added: "The solar technology being developed here is the future."

G24i's innovations are its dye-sensitised solar cells which are flexible and which are currently being used in the sails of a ship travelling around the world highlighting the issues surrounding climate change.

Clemens Betzel, President of G24 Innovations, said: "G24i is proud to be pioneering new silicon-free solar technology from its Cardiff base. We are grateful to have been able to show minister Jane Davidson our operations, including our plans to become the UK's first producer of renewable energy products to be powered entirely by renewable energy."

While the dye-sensitised solar panels do not yet have the efficiency that silicon solar panels have, they are flexible. They could also avoid getting involved in the the race for resources as silicon becomes more expensive due to increasing demand.
